In this add-on, you will use the “show” and “hide” blocks to make sprites appear on the pages of your scrapbook where you want the sprite.

Maybe the sprite makes sense on one background, but not on all of the others To do this, add a new sprite to the project or pick one of your existing sprites.

As you click “next,” you will notice that the sprite stays on all of the pages.

The looks menu contains “show” and “hide” blocks.

When you click on each of these, the sprite appears and disappears.

Drag the two blocks into the scripts area.

Use these blocks to make the sprites only show on the correct pages.

In the events menu, use a “when backdrop switches to” block.

For this example, the sprite will “show” “when the backdrop switches to “fave project.”

The sprite will “hide” when the backdrop switches to “fave memory.”

Now it’s your turn, Make a sprite appear and disappear on at least one backdrop using the “show,” “hide,” and “when backdrop switches to” blocks.
